Grace the Blackbird

It's that time of year again.  Halloween costumes are the top topic of conversation around our house lately.  Today Grace came for a visit and she wants to be a blackbird.   I wasn't sure how we were going to make her into a mean old blackbird, just like the ones that peck at our garbage can.

So after a trip to Fabricville, here is Grace the Beautiful Blackbird.  She has feathers around her wrists and her neck, and feathers on her head.  She also has feathers on her gorgeous tail.  She's a a beautiful blackbird, not like the bad garbage ones.

Feathers Feathers everywhere.  She will paint her nails black to look like claws on Halloween.

Here is the Blackbird Grace strutting her plumed tail.
